Customer Reviews

Good but could have been brilliant - Review by SEBL
Build Quality
Ease of Use
Value for Money
A good versatile product and the 48v system makes it a powerful machine. However it could have been so much better. The two minor product criticisms relate to the brush cutter - it is not a simple task of swapping between the grass cutter and bush cutter attachments and Mountfield don't even provide the right size spanner to make the change - there are separate washers and shields that need to be swapped during the process and these are bound to get lost. Given the main shaft is in two sections with a rather neat and simple joint it would be easier to have a separate trimmer attachment from this joint down rather than have to fiddle about with spanners and washers and other bits of the assemble at the business end. The second point relates to the brush cutter blade itself. It only has a radial blade whereas its competitors add a circumferential serration to each blade which would make the Mountfield so much more effective. As it is it tends to push away larger sticks rather than cutting them and you end up having to keep altering your approach position to get the blade to engage - increases the effort reqd and this thing is heavy so after an hour or two you do feel that it could have been easier. The batteries are horrendously expensive too - but very very good and for infrequent use a far better proposition than petrol.
To conclude - budget for buying a separate grass trimmer and swapping the batteries between rather than swapping the attachments and hope Mountfield offer a better blade attachment as a spare part at some point in the future. (Posted on 24/09/2015)
